Over two centuries, 1700 men and women were sent to the gallows in Australia. Noose vividly portrays eleven of these cases, including the first -- in 1788 of Thomas Barrett, a First Fleeter hanged for stealing food. And the very last, the hanging of Ronald Ryan, at Melbourne's Pentridge Prison in 1967, in the case that divided the nation.

Among others Noose explores the Mya;l; Creek Massacre, in which seven stockmen were hung for the slaughter of 28 aboriginal people; Elizabteh Woolcock, charged with poisoning her husband; and the possibly schizophrenic Clifford Hulme, a case which, combined with Angus Murray's hanging in 1924, presaged the beginning of the end for capital punishment in Australia.
